Distillation of pure substances from mixtures is a fundamental technique in chemistry. In analogy, higher fidelity quantum states can be distilled from many copies of low fidelity quantum states. The illustration imagines this distillation as a physical process. An example quantum circuit for magic state distillation is portrayed in the background. Mapping a quantum chemistry problem to a quantum computer involves the implementation of precise qubit rotations. The process of building precise rotations from noisy components requires fault-tolerant procedures. In this paper, we review how to achieve robust rotations by means of gate compilation and magic-state distillation.
